Hyderabad: Reigning Indian Premier League champions Kolkata Knight Riders are looking to justify their "reputation" with a good showing in the sixth edition edition of the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.

"We can always make a comeback (in IPL) when you don't start off well as the tournament is two month long. But CLT20 is a short a format and you got to be off the mark as soon as possible. You can't wait for the things to happen, you have to be on the button. There is very less chance of coming back.

"Come 17th, we should be up for it. We didn't start well in IPL but we turned it later on ended up winning the tourney. But this is different. If we can start off well, we can reduce lot of pressure from our shoulders," KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir told reporters here.
